The use of magnetic loading in AMC structures for bandwidth enhancement is demonstrated. More than a factor of four increase in reflection phase bandwidth is achievable with a magnetically loaded AMC compared to a conventional foam core AMC. Using the Mag-AMC, it is possible to build an antenna to instantaneously cover the UHF LOS frequency band in a depth of about 1.5″.
